Casa Batlló: a synthesis of beauty

One of the best-kept secrets and art masterpiece of Barcelona is Casa Batlló by the architect Antonio Gaudì. The architect realised the building in four years (1906-1910) for the textile magnate Josep Batlló. The house is located on the Paseo de Gracia in L’Eixample, one of the trendiest neighbourhoods of Barcelona.

The monument has references to fairytale and it is the synthesis of Antoni Gaudí unique imagination. The colourful façade, flowing and animal shapes, ceramic, patterns and spiral forms create movement and the feeling that the house is alive.
